For the beam in the attachment, determine the stress at point D located 32mm below point A.

a) 18.6 MPa

b) -15.8 MPa

c) 19.2 MPa

d) 18.1 MPa

Solution:

First of all, I changed the position of point D as required in the problem, not as it was shown in the provided picture. This is important for determining what kind of normal ...

#### Solution Summary

Word document attached finds the stress on a described beam at four different stages.
